2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
18th jan 2014 and I’m now in the Bavarian area of Berlin’s International Green Week: I’m thirsty again and notice a bar advertising Maxlrainer Edle Biers. I order a half litre of Pilsner which is on tap and find a seat to rest on.
Light golden, clear and bright, everything a German Pilsner should be. The snowy white head didn’t hang around, again just like most German Pilsners.
The beer was crisp but almost odourless, gets my standard 3 for aroma. Dry, hoppy and slightly floral in nature but nothing to put it above or below the regular Pilsners / Lagers of so many places in the world.
It refreshed my palate and I moved onto Saxony where more beers awaited me.

33cl bottle, bb today."Awarded annually by the DLG", another. Nice dry quenching Pils with quite a fresh floral hop bouquet, leanish palate and a slightly strange metallic afterbite. Above average.

Klassisches Pilsner ohne große Specials. Recht herb, trocken, leicht bitterer Abgang. Dazu noch Aromen von etwas Heu und Gras. Ganz in Ordnung.
